Attending college or trade school this fall? Missouri’s electric cooperatives are offering four $500 scholarships. The MEC Building is the only place the applications can be picked up or turned in. Winners will be chosen by a blind drawing, must have a permanent Missouri address and be a member in good standing of an electric cooperative. Applicants must visit the MEC Building during the fair, legibly complete the application and be accepted as a student at a college, university and/or a vocational, technical school program for the upcoming semester.
Friday, Aug. 19 is Missouri Electric Cooperatives Day. The first 1,500 visitors to the MEC Building will receive a free LED lightbulb. Clip the coupon on this page, and on that day you can ride in the midway until your heart’s content with $5 off an unlimited ride wristband.
There’s no shortage of opportunities for you and your family and friends at the fair. Whether this will be your first visit or it’s an annual pilgrimage, your memories will last long after your state fair adventure concludes.
